hi there, good luck with ur surgery.
i had my first step in jan and am now ready to have my bag removed, i havn't been on this site for a while.
the first thing i can remember is drink, here in the U.K they advice to drink lucozade sport, and it does help, especaily if ur really thirsty. you will want to have alot of drinks and have lots of snacks, something you can grab when your hungry.
that's all i can remember at the moment, but really i will think about you, i had UC for 7 years and i hav never felt better, i'm so better than before that i forwarded my reversal cos i wanted to spend time with my children.
and also take the advice on rest and avoid heavy jobs cos it will benefit you.
P.S i got a cleaner lol.
